Buona Pasqua! Happy Easter!
This Easter Sunday, Tutta Bella Neapolitan Pizzeria is donating 100% of the proceeds from sales of our Pasqua pizza (Pasqua means Easter in Italian) to one of our beloved charity partners, Amara, a not-for-profit that serves children in foster care and the families who care for them.
Tutta Bella partners with Amara to celebrate new adoptive families and reunified families with a complimentary dinner card so they can celebrate their first meal together.
“We are grateful to be able to contribute in a small way to the parents and their children as they begin their journey as a forever family,” said Tutta Bella Neapolitan Pizzeria owner and CEO Joe Fugere. “Nourishing lives by sharing traditions, authentic food and love has always been our vision at Tutta Bella, and hosting these families as they celebrate their lives coming together is an honor.”
Amara recently opened the doors to Harnish Building which houses their King County Emergency Sanctuary to provide a temporary home to kids who were recently removed from their own home, for their own safety.
“There is no greater need for children than to have a safe haven,” said Fugere. “This Easter Sunday, all of the proceeds from our Pasqua pizza will go to the emergency sanctuary program of Amara.”
“All of us – businesses, nonprofits, civic leaders, and community members – can play a role in improving the day-to-day experience of kids and families navigating foster care,” said Katie Ferguson, Fostering Family Manager, of Amara. “I dream of seeing our community embrace and support family the way Tutta Bella has done for Amara over the years!”

“Our Executive Chef Brian Gojdics is on a well-deserved International trip right now, but, in his absence, we wanted to be sure we properly celebrated the culinary traditions of Easter in both Italy and the U.S.,” said Fugere. “This pizza featuring the ‘ouvo,’ which translates to egg in Italian, inspired me to get into the kitchen, reignite my culinary skills, and develop the Pasqua pizza.”
“Just don’t tell the chef!” he added with a laugh.
